That reminds me of the Honda XR650L which has been unchanged since 1993 as well. What other things with engines and wheels have been unchanged for over 20 years?

quick question on the topic of the Express. There is one for sale locally with a VIN of 1GCGG292071147059. It has a duramax.


8th digit is 2 indicating an LLY and the 10th is 7 indicating an 07. Is that right? An 07' LLY ?

I had an '88 R30, and it was just a standard cab, with a lovely 5.7 tbi motor.

07 is the crossover year, early 07's will have the LBZ coded as an LLY

I forgot all about the 3rd generation "Bread Box" Chevy vans from 1971-1995. 24 years. The current generation is set to break that record.
